It is the 2nd game of a five game-road trip for the Rockets and a tough pro basketball betting situation as they played in Toronto last night. The Hawks are also in a back-to-back basketball betting spot as they were at New Jersey last night.
Basketball betting trends show that the Rockets have won 7 of the last 10 meetings between the two teams and they are 6-4 against the pro basketball betting pointspread. At Atlanta though, the Hawks have won three of the last four meetings between the two teams as basketball betting stats indicate.
The basketball betting total is mixed on this game as six of the last ten matchups have gone under. Three of the last four in Atlanta have stayed under the pro basketball betting total. This makes some sense considering both teams have solid defensive numbers this season.
Basketball betting stats show that Houston has been in the Top 10 in defense for most of the season. Their offense is also capable with Tracy McGrady, Yao Ming and Ron Artest leading the way. Houston has been a capable team both home and away and is almost always a threat versus the basketball betting pointspread.
Atlanta has very similar basketball betting numbers to Houston. They are also in the Top 10 in defense and mid-pack on offense. They don’t have quite as many offensive weapons though, but Joe Johnson is capable of impacting the pro basketball betting pointspread on a nightly basis. Atlanta has been a very tough home team the past couple of seasons versus the basketball betting number but the Rockets have shown they can win anywhere versus the basketball odds.
Saturday’s are normally very busy days for basketball betting. This matchup between the Hawks and Rockets is one of the better ones on the basketball betting board. Make sure that you don’t miss out on this game or any of the other basketball odds by opening an account at SBG Global today.
